Falling in love doesn't hinder your forward path in life; in fact, at its best, it can help to define it. And you've got some pretty strong instincts when it comes to choosing a partner for yourself. You have a good idea of where you want to be in five, ten or twenty years, and you're not likely to get involved with someone who's going to derail you from those plans.
Even if you do get involved in a love affair that takes you someplace new and unexpected, you'll incorporate it into the plans you've already made, because you're so creative and resourceful about your picture of your own destiny and what life has in store for you. Nothing's etched in stone, after all; you're open to the universe and where it wants to take you. You're not overly impressionable by any means; you can draw a healthy line when it comes to a relationship that's threatening to take you too far from where you want to go. But you also know how to flow, and how to take hold of opportunities when they arise. Just remember, the easy way isn't always the best one. Don't just flow when it comes to love -- or life. A challenge can teach you a lot about yourself and what you're made of.
